Guangxi Museum


This fairly interesting museum showcases Qing ceramics, art and calligraphy with Guangxi characteristics, and the customs of ethnic minorities. The collection of ancient copper drums is one of China's best. It's been closed for several years as it undergoes renovation, and is estimated to reopen in 2020.

The garden out back is a welcome highlight, with a reproduction Wind and Rain Bridge, where you can also dine.
